Arrival and departure

Arrival and departure — Greener travel

The travel of participants to and from our events is one of the biggest challenges in reducing emissions.

Our goal is to create a variety of options that offer an attractive and sustainable alternative for all participants.

To achieve this, we rely on the cooperation of all athletes.

At the GENERALI BERLIN HALF MARATHON, participants already receive a free BVG ticket for their journey to and from the event. On the day of the event, participants can use all public transport in the Berlin fare zones by presenting their race numbers. 

In addition, we have set up an event ticket for discounted travel by train. 

Many participants are dependent on air travel to and from the event. We are all the more pleased to be able to offer a direct way to calculate and compensate for flight emissions. By compensating, you help to reduce the ecological footprint of the event.

 Here´s what you can do:

Make your own personal contribution to a more sustainable event by conscientiously choosing your means of travel or by carpooling to the GENERALI BERLIN HALF MARATHON.

Travelling by train is - if possible! - the most environmentally friendly option. By car, an average of 154 g of greenhouse gases are emitted per person per kilometre. If you travel by plane, you emit as much as 214 g per kilometre.

When you travel by rail, only 29 g of climate-damaging greenhouse gases are emitted per kilometre. (Source UBA)
